GRAMERCY—Didn't pick up a puppy from Uber this week? Maybe that's because a different animal is more your speed. The ASPCA and Cleo the Bunny are teaming up to find homes for rabbits rescued in Gowanus with an adoption event at the Gymnasium of the Candidate Assessment Building (20th Street between Second and Third Aves) this Saturday, February 6th between 1pm and 4pm. The $25 adoption fee includes not only your spayed/neutered furry friend, but also a cage and a water bottle. Look here for more information.
PARK SLOPE—Babeland follows up naughty nail art with a lesson on how to incorporate chocolate in the bedroom with Fine and Raw Chocolate. The first ten people to arrive at 462 Bergen Street for the 7pm event will get some toys to take home, and one lucky attendee will score a gift basket and a private tasting tour at Fine and Raw's factory. Remember, everyone over the age of 18 — regardless of gender, sexuality, or relationship status — are welcome to attend; RSVP here before stopping by.
